How can you watch it if you're dead?
Because I am double vaccinated.
So you are unaware that there are people who are double vaccinated that have died from COVID-19. And I wouldn’t go using the “old and sick defense because from all accounts you are as well.

^^ did you forget that they called the Military in to help in LTC's when the pandemic first started ?? and they were appalled at the lack of care the Elderly were receiving due to being short staffed, which was/is very common in our LTC homes ??
Where's the link to that ?
He doesn’t need to provide you with the link for that it was common knowledge it was all over the news and the Internet if you’re not keeping up then that is not his problem or anybody else’s except yours. Hint. Google military and long term care homes. *bleep*

I remember the first time getting hooked up with internet back in the 1990's. Apparently it still is a challenge.
Is that better?

Are you trying to be funny or suggesting that qualified nurses worthy of being deemed quality worth high pay are going to come straight out of high school by next year?
He hope you think it's funny because we all know the RN programme is a MINIMUM 2 years if you have all the right science pre req's
You think the people working in Long Term Care homes are all RNs?

Nope never said that .. But you can't just have care aides running the show now , can you ?
Gonna need a few RN's and LPN's ..

If you think all those skilled workers can be replaced over night when the cry for more has been out for years , you're sadly mistaken ...

I am of the opinion that this will cull the ones who should never have been in patient care to begin with.
Like the one whose story was on Castanet a few days ago. Took vaccines to get into the country, but won't take one now. Works in patient care, but does not believe in scientific medicine.

I agree completely with this letter.

I found this particularly interesting.

Other requirements:

It is recommended that students also complete a Grade 11 Science or ABE Science at the 70 or 80 Level.

Applicants must provide evidence of successful completion of a Red Cross Standard First Aid or St. John Ambulance Standard First Aid that includes Basic Life Support, CPR Level C no more than 12 months before admission.

A criminal record check clearance from the B.C. Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General's Criminal Records Review Office. Okanagan College's admission offices will provide applicants with instructions and forms for applicants to submit to the Solicitor General's Office and a deadline for the College to receive the clearance letter. Applicants should only initiate their criminal record check when instructed by Admissions. Failure to provide a clearance letter by the deadline will result in a cancellation of the applicant's admission application.

Applicants must provide evidence of a negative tuberculin test, taken no more than six months before the date of application (or evidence of appropriate follow-up if the test was positive.)

Applicants must have successfully completed the provincially-approved FOODSAFE training program.

Proof of meeting current immunizations I vaccinations as per health care organization policies I guidelines (or signed vaccination exemption form, except TB). Applicants are advised that, if they are unable to provide proof of immunization or immunity they may be restricted or even excluded from practice settings based on the Health Facility or Health Authority policies and procedures for non-immunized students on placement. This information will be collected on the first day of class by the instructor.
Attendance at a program orientation day is strongly recommended. Applicants will be notified of the exact date.

Applicants are advised that students in this program engage actively in laboratory practice, acting both as patient/client and as caregiver in simulated situations. Notwithstanding all specific program prerequisites, Okanagan College reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant when, in the opinion of OC, there is sufficient and substantiated evidence, medical or otherwise, to conclude that by granting admission OC would jeopardize the safety of clients under student care or would otherwise be negligent in providing for the safety and well-being of clients, agency staff or other students.

^^ did you feel the same when this pandemic first started ?? or were you just happy that there were front line workers who were just there bravely facing the unknown virus doing jobs that most people can't easily do ??

since you think that they should be "culled" ( what a nasty word to describe someone losing their career ) because they have only one option to keep their job is ok, then obviously you never had any respect for them in the first place..

I did feel the same. When I found out about the people working in long term care who were not following the protocols.
Those who were still going out socially, having people over. Being exposed, then happily going to work and bringing the virus with them.

I have respect for healthcare workers who put the patients lives first. Those who follow protocols and perform their PROFESSIONAL duties as professionals.

Think about this: When care homes were on complete lockdown, how did Covid come in?

Simple Answer: With STAFF.

So how many of these so-called healthcare workers actually CAUSED deaths in care homes?

Those same people who are refusing the vaccine, were also gathering in large protests, with anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers and Covid deniers. Further endangering their patients by their actions.

So in answer to your question: No, I do not have respect for them.

I don't disagree with the letter to Castanet. They should have probably gotten someone a bit more sympathic when they were interviewing for the story
